You need to find the noise, and the signal. You can estimate them if you want, but to get the ratio you need each of them separately.

You can use conv() to smooth your signal with a box filter. But if you don't know your true signal then you won't know how much to smooth it. I guess you could just eyeball it and go with whatever you think looks good.

smoothedSignal = conv(noisySignal, ones(1, windowWidth)/windowWidth, 'same');
